Curry roasted cauliflower

Roasting cauliflower is a great way to introduce toasty, nutty flavors. If you aren’t usually a fan of cauliflower, roasting it with curry spices is guaranteed to change your mind. It makes a great side dish for pretty much any meat dish and will be a delicious addition to a vegetarian meal.

How to roast cauliflower

  1. Prepare the cauliflower: Slice the florets from one to two heads of cauliflower and chop the stems into bite-sized chunks.
  2. Season: Add a few tablespoons of oil, curry powder or Garam Masala, ground cardamom, chilli flakes (red pepper flakes), salt and pepper. Toss well to coat the cauliflower in the spices.
  3. Roast: Place the cauliflower in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Roast at 200ºC/390ºF for approximately 30-45 minutes, tossing half way through. The cauliflower is ready when a knife can easily be inserted and the cauliflower is caramelized.

Can you freeze this?

I wouldn’t recommend freezing cauliflower because the texture can be very watery once thawed. Roasted cauliflower can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days in an airtight container. To reheat the cauliflower, toast in a hot pan until warmed through and crispy around the edges.

Can you roast frozen cauliflower?

Yes, you can. Roast the cauliflower from frozen and increase the oven’s temperature to 220ºC/430ºF. You want to make sure the cauliflower doesn’t steam in the oven so a higher temperature is essential.
